  • Summary: This is the most user unfriendly device ever manufactured. It takes forever for it to do anything if you can figure out how to get it to operate at all. I wanted to SLEDGE mine but decided to give it to someone else to test their frustration level F---

Nice receiver for the price.

  • Summary: Nice receiver for the price. Two zones. Speakers A & B. However, my first one went out three years after purchase. Bought another refurbished one from ebay. Work's great, for now. Hopefully, the first one was a fluke.

HDMI Pass-Thru Only

Ryan Price "@liberatr", Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver refurbished, otherwise I would have gotten a higher model number that converted all the video sources to the HDMI signal. When I hook up a DVD player or laptop to the unit, I also have to connect a separate audio cable.

Jeff Moriarty, Amazon

  • Summary: I had an Onkyo before this that eventually went into satefy mode...so I decided to upgrade. I have a 52" samsung along with a Polk Surroundbar 50, so was looking for something that would easily handle that (Prologic II) and my 10" polk sub.

AVR-1609

scott macpherson, Amazon
2 November 2009
  • Summary: The denon AVR-1609 is a great A/V reciever. Some people do not like the fact that the audio HDMI portion is just a pass-thru but I like it because I only use fiber optic for my audio(the 1609 has 2).

Skeptic in Inglewood

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 October 2009
  • Summary: After purchasing this item, I read the reviews. I can tell you that after reading them I tried to cancel this item through Amazon on-line before it shipped. I was truly dissappointed that I could not cancel through Amazon but only through the shipper "Crutchfield".

Best $200 piece of audio equipment I've seen

Michael Skinner, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: Was just looking for a basic receiver to replace an old one that died. It was just for some speakers I have outside & in a formal dining area. I've already got 2 pretty nice Denon's for the 2 home theater areas in my house, and love them.
